The Association of Police Officers of N. Heraklion refers to the lack of security measures and self tests mainly for the detainees, which in fact uses as a recent example the positive cases identified in the Transfer Department.
The announcement of the Union in detail:
Because we foresaw the immediate danger, on 28-04-2021 we sent a letter-proposal to the political and of course leadership with which we requested all the services of EL.AS. Detention facilities should be provided with a sufficient number of self-tests so that the detainees themselves can be checked before being admitted to them as nowhere was there a provision for those detained or brought to police services and there is no point in checking all Body when hundreds of people are detained in the police services and moved every day without any control, with all that this entails for the safety of our colleagues but also for the spread of the virus.
Our proposal, as we all understood, ended up in the wastebasket, since only three days later in the detention centers of the Heraklion Transfer Department were found positive both prisoners and our colleagues who had shouldered their custody, while until today FOUR DAYS AFTER competent health unit, although he has been called to carry out tests on the other detainees as well.
Is there a health protocol for cases where positive cases are detected in detention facilities?
If so, why were they not implemented by the competent health services even though they were informed in time?
As far as we know, both the rapid test measure and the short-term quarantine in special areas before the detainee enters the main areas of the prison are applied in the prisons. Why not do something similar apply to police detention facilities?
We request the immediate control with rapid tests of all detainees by a competent staff of EODY, configuration of special quarantine areas for new detainees and the provision of a sufficient number of self tests for detainees of all services.
We understand that police officers are considered consumable but some things are beyond reason.
